Well, I know on the iPhone app, this is something that you have to do as a constant. Because it's the only way that you can see all of your mail. As for doing it in the Outlook program, all I've had to do is switch from each account whenever I used to use Outlook.

Subject: Bug: JAWS Does Not Identify Selected or Highlighted Text In The Jarte Word Processor

Description:

The following issue can be consistently reproduced in the January build of JAWS 2021 as well as in the latest build of JAWS 2020. This bug does not exist
in JAWS 2019.

When in the
Jarte
 word processor executing commands to select text does not speak. Pressing the shift key along with arrow keys does select the text but JAWS is silent.

Steps to Reproduce


1. Open Jarte.
2. Enter some text in the blank document.
3. Press ctrl+home to move to the top of the document.
4. Press the shift key along with arrow keys to select text.


Expected Results

JAWS should verify the text as it is being selected, followed by the word “selected.”

Actual Results

JAWS is silent when selecting text.

Mario, while JAWS won't specifically identify or verify the text which has been selected these commands should still allow you to cut, copy, delete and format text until Vispero corrects the issue.

I tried this and JAWS does not identify the selected text. although the directions are clear, I don't believe I'm doing it wrong.

Subject: JAWS does not read selected text in Jarte Hello. There is a workaround for the bug involving JAWS not identifying selected text when in Jarte. Until the issue has been fixed you can use the place markers feature to mark the beginning of a block of text with
ctrl+Windows+K. Next, move to the other end of the block of text and
press the layered keystroke insert+space key followed by the letter M.
Once this has been done you can delete, cut or copy the text. For best results it is good to first save the document before issuing these commands. Keyboard Manager can also be used to reassign these keys to ones of your choosing.

David, using JAWS 2020 with the latest update and the portable version of Jarte, I have tried and experienced the same issue. I'm wondering if it has to do with the highlighting that Jarte does (or lack of) when selecting text?

enhanced edit mode has been disabled after opening the settings center by launching it from pressing insert+f2.

anyone have an idea or fix?

Subject: JAWS does not read selected text in Jarte Mario, I am sorry to tell you that I am able to verify your friend's findings, at least with the January build of JAWS 2021. I've been a user of Jarte for many years and I'm quite certain that this is a new regression. I don't have JAWS

2020 on this laptop or else I'd compare the results with that version.

I'm wondering if someone running JAWS

2020 or earlier can confirm this behavior.

A few things to note. In order to get JAWS to speak the location of the caret or cursor from within Jarte enhanced editor mode should be disabled within Settings Center but please do this once Jarte has been opened to ensure that toggling this setting to off will not negatively impact another program.

For reference when you press the shift key with arrow key navigation the expected behavior is that you would hear the text which you are highlighting, along with the word "selected." With Jarte text is being selected but JAWS is silent while selection commands are being issued.

If others can confirm this behavior please do send a bug report to support@... <mailto:support@...> with as much specific information as you can

provide: version of JAWS, steps to reproduce, expected results and actual results. 6.2 is the latest version of Jarte.

Please direct any responses about this to the list and not to me privately as I am not able to provide individual support for Jarte or with this issue, in general.

Subject: JAWS does not read selected text in Jarte

an acquaintance is having a problem that I'm hoping someone can help.

he is using Jarte, and when he selects some text to delete, it is not read back as selected like it does using Wordpad. he would prefer using Jarte because he can start a new document by simply pressing control+n and then use control+tab to switch to a different document.

I helped him disable Enhanced edit in the configuration for JAWS 2020 so it is possible to review the text.

is there another setting that can be modified to fix this problem?

That’s what I have been doing, but I have just been wondering if JAWS could work with Spotify.  What annoys me about listening to podcasts using Spotify is that they always appear in descending, not ascending, order.  I have contacted this list and have asked if you could change that setting in Spotify using JAWS but nobody seems to know.  I’m going to contact Freedom Scientific again and suggest that they consider making Spotify compatible with JAWS.

I have just recently become acquainted with Spotify.  I have submitted to your list questions about how to use Spotify with JAWS  and nobody is being of any help.  Today I tried contacting Freedom Scientific and they say that they don’t have anything to do with Spotify.  In fact, I don’t know if they have even heard of it.  So I’m trying to find out from anybody if there are any places where you can subscribe to podcasts which are compatible with JAWS and which you can use JAWS with, such as creating and adding to music playlists or, when you find a podcast if you want to hear episodes in ascending rather than in descending order.  If any of you know of any such programs that are compatible with JAWS will you please tell me what they are?  I do not use Apple.  I use a Desktop PC, use Windows 10 and use JAWS 2021.

It’s too bad Freedom Scientific is so ignorant of spotify. I haven’t messed with it so I can’t say how manageable it really is for a screen-reader user. I like podcasts nowadays, but I just go to their websites and download local copies of the episodes (not necessarily easily done with 8all* podcasts). If you use a desktop, you should be able to play episodes in your browser.

Leasey has Leaseycast as a part of it’s program, but I don’t think the podcasts automatically download. You have to download them manually.

But to me, it works well enough.

moderated Re: Easiest way to add headings to Word doc?

Van Lant, Robin
 

Thank you all.  The Control alt 1 method works well.  I think the thing that frustrated me about the Styles options is that it uses different fonts than I might want and the style options felt overwhelming because they are telling you all the fonts and formatting for each type of heading.  I tend to use Arial or Calibri fonts and even using the Control Alt 1 method changes the font for the heading to Cambria.  Even though this document is just for me, if I use headings in another document for work, I want to be aware of the font changes.  I did find that, after I do a heading, I can change the font back to my standard font and the heading marking still sticks.  I suppose I should take the time and tips from one of the listers to create my own style selection that uses my preferred fonts, but that is more than I want to bite of today when I’m simply trying to tag something for quick key navigation.

Press CTRL alt and whatever number you want. For example, 1 for heading 1 text and 2 for heading 2 text. You can press the above hotkey either before or after typing your text. Just know that after you type text you want in heading xxx, you have to of course select it before pressing above hotkey.

There are literally hundreds of background processes that run under Windows 10 or any operating system, for that matter.

It is impossible to say whether anything you have there "shouldn't be there" without a far more detailed analysis.

Hello Maria, You can also press control + shift + tab and this also puts you back in the treview  and also doing it this way you can also get back in to the last inbox you just got out of without having to inter another inbox first so I have been doing it this way since I got 365. Several years ago.

Smart Screen isn't there, but there a whole bunch of things that I never even knew I had on my computer, but they're background apps, so I assume that they're supposed to be there and running right?

Madison, I also had this issue in the past.
On my machine, Microsoft smartscreen was causing the issue.
During my testing it was revealed that smartscreen using more than 80% of CPU, of course when cpu was suppose to be idle.
As cpu always on work, so be the fan to cool it down.
I didn't remember how, but I managed to remove this file from my machine, and problem went away!
You, first of all check the cpu usage by app by going into task manager (ctrl+shift+esc).
If this is your first time into task manager, than press tab a few times and press the spacebar on more details button.
After this press the 's' to move to the apps starting wiht s. And check whether smartscreen is there or not.
If there, check its cpu usage.
And if indeed it causing the problem, than google how to remove this file.
Hope it might help.

The issue being that there are way, way, way more actual burn errors
with optical media, which is my central point. I have had certain
machines where it was a 50/50 shot for any CD/DVD being burned whether
it would ultimately work. I have not had that experience, ever, with USB media.

Neither way is right or wrong. I just prefer what's been, in my
experience, more reliable and where the media used can be reused a
virtually unlimited number of times and is way easier to carry around.
When you add the fact that many newer laptops don't even have an optical drive . . .
